What to expect?

If you decide to register for the Public Mothers’ Milk Bank, this precious donation involves three steps:

  1. Registration
  2. Qualification process
  3. Donation

Mothers with the right profile can register by completing a questionnaire. To obtain a copy, call 1-800-565-6635 or 514-832-5000, extension 5253.


A qualification process has been developed for mothers wishing to donate milk. This process, which is designed to ensure the safety of infants receiving the milk, includes a telephone interview in which the mother answers a health questionnaire, as well as a blood test.


Mothers who meet the eligibility criteria collect and freeze their milk at home, then send it to Héma-Québec at regular intervals.
